    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    ----Must not have capital letters in.
    ----Must be versioned. (cp_example no, cp_example_a1 yes)
    Required: url to offsite OR onsite download. (dropbox prefered)
    *NOTE: You can keep the same TF2Maps.net file number by clicking edit on your file's page and then simply putting a new file in the upload box. This makes it easier for you (don't have to update all your links!), easier for me, and less clutter on the site.
    ----May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload or Rapid-share (wait times, codes, excessive ads, gov't take-downs, etc).
    ----BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host.
    ----You may NOT reserve a submission without a download. You can update your download to a new version after submitting, before the submission closes.
    If you need a specific time slot: Available time & your time zone.
    • If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)
    • If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.
    • If you have a tf2maps thread, a link to this is also useful. It makes it much easier to give feedback to you, and gives you a place to centralise information about your map.

    Testing options
    • A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages).
    • Everyone will get a demo of their map after the test, and a link to the event feedback page.


    Rules/Guidelines
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc.
    __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    Map must be IN DEVELOPMENT, finished maps do not require testing.
    Map may NOT use a point_servercommand to alter any variables.
    Map must be designed for normal play. No melee-only, class-restricted, or otherwise gimmicky maps
    Medieval Maps will be allowed under decision of gameday host. They will be given the last timeslot of the gameday.
    • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.
    NOTE: Any maps that have best in the previous weeks gamedays (regardless of version/changes) will be given lowest priority of entry into the gameday schedule, or will not be part of gameday at all.

    Information
    Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena, Orphaned stages and Medieval maps get 15 minutes.
    • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing, give or take.

    cp_gameplay_latteh and strata were both broken. In Latteh, you could walk straight into the enemy spawn. In strata, you could only shoot into it. For this reason, latteh isn't in the gameday, and strata is being tested last, in case it leads to player loss.

    This is a shortish gameday, so if you have a map you want to tag on at the end, PM or steam-message me.

    The file I uploaded didn't have capital F. The map pack you uploaded doesn't have capital F but still in schedule you have written it with capital F LeSwordfish. Where the capital F came from?

    I demand bloood :O

    Yes, i told them not to do it at 3:30pm but they were persistant.

    I think it turned out ok in the end though, since conviniently it's half term so all the kiddy winks are online. Server population seemed to hover between 16 and 20. Could have been worse.

    I decided to stick to the previous time rather than change anything. If i were to be running these on a regular basis- spoiler alert, i'm not, i don't have time- they'd be later.

    Apologies to TomHoen for not testing frostfell at the time you were hoping- i was told it had a capital letter in, and this seemed to be why the redirect was failing. I put two and two together, and i think i got a reasonable answer. In fairness, i think numbers were about as good throughout.

    There was nothing wrong with the redirect, the server went down because the map change was made using a capital, not because the filename had a capital letter in it.

    Just asking, whenever anyone get's a chance could you upload the STV from the test of my map? I'd really appreciate it.

    So it was just simple misinformation. The time wasn't so bad and I got solid test as I wanted.

    Could I too get STV of my map test? I think it was after YM map.
